The Future Of The GOP
Stunned by electoral losses last fall, the Republican National Committee commissioned an analysis of the GOP. It found the party had come to be defined by what it's against, not by what it stands for. In a recent speech, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said, "Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker." Some believe extremists have hijacked the party - hurting moderates at the polls and in Congress. In a TV interview over the weekend, former Republican Senator Bob Dole suggested he barely recognizes today's GOP. Diane and guests assess the future of the Republican Party.
